Match Notes

  • Compton stars as Middlesex stay cagey

    Nick Compton responded well to the threat of Steve Finn on a lively Uxbridge track but Somerset predictably found another cagey Middlesex declaration beyond serious consideration

  • Rogers mulls declaration for title prospects

    Last week, Chris Rogers rejected the chance to tempt Northants with a target on the final day. Whether he is in more enterprising mood on day four here will go a long way towards determining Middlesex's title prospects

  • Compton, Finn show international class

    A year ago, Nick Compton and Steven Finn would not have envisaged spending these four days at Uxbridge. They would have anticipated playing against India at Trent Bridge tomorrow.

  • Malan profits from Somerset slips

    No county in recent years has been more haunted by missed opportunities than Somerset. So four missed chances on the opening day at Uxbridge will imbue the side with regret.
